Fig started fruiting indoors, now dropped all fruit

nitsujMay 3, 2011

I moved my fig indoors when we had a cold streak here in Portland. Left it downstairs and it started to leaf and fruit. However, the leaves/fruit all fell off within 30 days. Now that it's outdoors (and looks how most figs around here do now, dormant) is there anything I can do so that it'll refruit or am I hosed for this growing season?

Thanks.

It probably just lost the brebas. Unless you have a desert king you'll have a main season crop. Also if your tree is younger this is normal. younger trees commonly drop figs. Hope thats helpful.

Thanks for the response. Just searched for what breba was and it was all growing on old wood. Moved the fig outdoors now and gave it a little fertilizer, looks like new shoots are starting up so we'll see what happens...
